Aahh, after ten thousand years, I'm free. It's time to conquer earth release a cute VN.

Image

Synopsis:
Borrowing inspiration from Deji’s fantasy world of Ishtera, the story takes place there. Ishtera is populated by two races: dragonkind, who have lived there for eons, and the heavenkind who have recently appeared.

Auralee, an inspiring knight from the farming town of Berri, stumbles upon something unexpected during one of her patrols. After a rather inelegant introduction, Kerr states he's really an Earth Dragon - one of the mystical beasts that inhabit their world, Ishtera. Whether he likes it or not, Auralee is now involved in his mission to regain his dragon form. Along with some help by a fellow dragonkind named Ilmari, their journey begins...

A simple VN about friendship, growth and understanding, we hope it’s as warm and comforting as apple cider.

Features:
- 41 000 words (roughly an hour playthrough)
- Partial voice acting (similar to Fire Emblem: Awakening)
- 3 endings
- Tons of cuteness!

Windows, Mac and Linux version are all available here

You can download the art book here for a price of $0+. ^_^v

Credits:
Concept: Felipe Morano, Deji
Art and CGs: Deji
Chibi Art: Nellie
BGs: Morishita, Sche, Deji
GUI: Deji, Nellie
Script: KittyKatStar
Coding and Editing: Arowana
Voice Acting: Michelle Rojas as Auralee, Tim Morris as Kerr, Peter Gerkman as Ilmari
Ending Song: "Thank You" by Jason Chen (produced by Smash Hitta)

Walkthrough added!

For Kerr
- Ask if he's hungry
- Tease him
- Talk to Kerr
Accept the following quests: Aviterral feathers, honey-glazed apple tarts, save the chickens!
It should open up "Ilmari is a good friend, Kerr is..."


For Ilmari
- Confess you want to touch his ears
- Accept for a bit
- Check on Ilmari
Accept the following quests: Go fishin', INTENSE RESCUE MISSION, Gather 5 Nightshades
It should open up "Kerr is a good friend, Ilmari is..."


For Friendship
Basically just pick "both are wonderful friends" however - depending on whether you get Ilmari's reading scene, or Kerr's wrestling scene, there will be minor changes. So the friendship ending has 2 minor variations.

Congrats on the release~ ^^ I lost sleep playing this game last night, haha! Although the website suggests that one playthrough is roughly an hour long, I think I took double that time because I wanted to savour every bit of the game.

It was incredibly enjoyable, I loved the theme of friendship, and I also think the ending was satisfying (though I'm also curious about a sequel). The only thing that bothers me was maybe the writing in the middle of the game
where they were completing missions, because it was all summarized and the pace of the game just suddenly shifted
. Otherwise, the writing, art, and music were all A++. Anyways, great work!

Good catch. That was during the nano deadline and we were trying to find a way to show time passing. 6 individual chapters would probably be too much, so it was a quick way to summarize events + cute chibis. I guess the best way would have been scrapping it entirely... and just jump to the next Kerr or Ilmari scene. ^^;


Thanks so much for the feedback!

In case anyone was wondering, the writing itself stuck to the nano deadline. The only thing that was added throughout the year were a few extra CGs and all of the backgrounds. I think backgrounds took... 7 months to complete, and that was *after* we saved up enough money to hire Mori (2-4 months?).
